The Roosevelt Hotel was named after the 26th President of the United States, Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt. The name seemed appropriate to the architects of the hotel who designed the building style in honor of Roosevelt’s fondness for early American colonial times.
To honor the birthday of our namesake, The Roosevelt Hotel New York will be hosting another Twitter contest for a very exclusive hotel room rate. You may remember the last contest we hosted for the hotel’s 85th anniversary just a few weeks ago. It was such a success (and a lot of fun!) that we decided to do it again!
On Teddy’s birth date, October 27th, we will be posting two separate quiz questions about the life and times of President Roosevelt. The first five (5) correct answers will win a VERY special room rate at The Roosevelt Hotel New York.
Here are the rules:
